Course Description

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, music’s greatest prodigy, excelled at both instrumental and vocal compositions. He wrote symphonies, works for piano, chamber and choral music, songs and operas. Ms. Mauch will concentrate her exploration of Mozart’s fabulous opera trio, “Le Nozze di Figaro,” “Don Giovanni,” and “Cosi Fan Tutte,” using CDs and DVD performances that capture the master’s genius. All were composed in the later part of Mozart’s life, and all used the famed Lorenzo da Ponte’s librettos. In addition to unforgettable melodies and harmonies, these works create remarkable characters and probe topics of compelling human interest, from stratified class systems to courtship and the destabilizing results of licentious behavior. Discover or get reacquainted with these memorable works from this joyful and prolific composer. Dust off those opera glasses!
